Areas of Practice



As a career prosecutor, I am dedicated to public service and enhancing communities through legal consultation, policy, education, and facilitation of ensured legal standards. I look forward to partnering with agencies with a focus on community policing.

Andy LeFevour serves as a Senior Attorney for Eckberg Lammers. He is dedicated to public service and engaging law enforcement to better communities through legal consultation, education, and facilitation of ensured legal standards.

Andy has spent the majority of his career working for the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office. Most recently he served as the Chief Deputy County Attorney overseeing and managing the daily operations of the criminal division, all while navigating difficult periods of unrest and management.

With over 33 years of criminal law experience prosecuting violent offenders, drug crime, homicide, environmental law, and mental health - Andy is a highly accomplished lawyer who has managed and prosecuted thousands of criminal cases, bringing an excess of 100 cases through trial. He has managed complex litigation jury trials, 4th and 5th amendment litigation, as well as sentencing and post-conviction. His extensive experience led him to the implementation of organizational policies and procedures within the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office that have been adopted by other local jurisdictions and recognized nationally as standard models, such as:

  • 3rd Precinct Community Prosecution Initiative: Combat Chronic Offenders and Livability Crimes, recognized as a national model by the National Association of Counties (NACO)
  • Community Prosecution Initiative to Minneapolis and Hennepin County, recognized by the U.S. Department of Justice as a National Leadership Site
  • Public Nuisance Enforcement Model, recognized as a national model by National Association of Counties

During his career, Andy developed educational programs and training focusing on community, policymaking, enforcement, and investigation. Training at both a local and national level, Andy provides law enforcement agencies with Crisis Management Solutions, Internal Investigations, Administrative Compliance, Diversity and Inclusion, and Special Prosecutor Services. Andy is also a Certified Teacher for the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC), which provides training for all federal law enforcement agents in the United States.
